Redskins | Robert Griffin wants to take less hits

Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III realizes he's been hit very often the last several weeks, and he wants to try to avoid unnecessary contact moving forward. "We don't want that to happen," Griffin said. "I know I don't want that to happen, the coaches don't want that to happen, the players around me don't want that to happen and we just have got to do a better job of making sure that doesn't happen." He said he has to "take it upon myself to get down earlier."

Fantasy Tip: Griffin's knee has looked healthier as the season has progressed, which is one of the reasons he's taking more hits as he feels more comfortable scrambling from the pocket. He's a midrange QB1 that can make more things happen now that he's using his legs more often.
